Interact Club – Famine 10

By April 7, 2015GIN & Clubs, Social Justice

The Interact Club in CDNIS is a student organised group sponsored by Hong Kong’s Rotary Organisation ( The club’s mission statement is to tackle local and global issues by participating in monthly service activities. On March 27th, more than 40 students took part in Famine 10, an annual event where students fasted for 10 hours and completed lunch and after school simulations in order to raise awareness for famine in our world. This year, our theme was health and diseases, and we focused on how this is a major factor that causes famine. All proceeds went towards World Vision, a humanitarian organisation which tackles the causes of poverty and injustice. After fasting for 10 hours, students came out understanding that not all people are as fortunate as we are. By participating in the simulations, students had a taste of what life is like for the less fortunate. Students were also able to gain new knowledge about diseases of poverty and how it affects the lives of communities. From this event, we hope students recognise that they are able to make a difference to the global community.
